Lip Fillers Houston
What Are Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are injectables used to plump your lips. These types of fillers are dermal fillers and include a variety of different substances to increase lip volume, definition, or create a cupid’s bow upper lip.
How Does it Work?
Lip fillers are injected with a fine gauge needle directly into the lip to increase volume and size. There is a pinch when the filler pushes its way under the skin. With the filler in place, the lip is massaged for even distribution.
What are the Different Types of Lip Fillers?
- Fat injection or lipoinjection — a longer-lasting lip filler that uses the patient’s own fat. Fat injections are very natural since they use your own natural fat to increase lip volume.
- Hyaluronic acid fillers — A more commonly used filler that takes a modified form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance found in the body, and injects it into the lips.
Are Lip Fillers Safe?
When it comes to lip fillers and safety, it is important to choose a reputable and licensed skincare clinic such as The Clinic For Plastic Surgery. Lips fillers are relatively safe, but they are not for everyone. General risks for dermal fillers are minor, but it is important to place your care in the hands of a plastic surgeon that can address any concerns you may have. Dr. Sukkar will discuss all of the options with you, so that you can choose which dermal filler is most appropriate for the look you envision.
Am I a Good Candidate for Lip Fillers?
Lip fillers are a great way to enhance the look of your lips. No downtime and minimal side effects, you really can’t go wrong. But, with so many options available, it is important to discuss your goals and any concerns you have with your doctor. The team at The Clinic For Plastic Surgery is experienced with the variety of lip fillers and has been helping patients achieve the look they want for years.
What are the Benefits of Lip Fillers?
Since the amount of plumping depends on how much filler is used, your expert injector has good control over the outcome. You can start gradually, and if you get to a desired look, treatment can be stopped. Multiple treatments can be scheduled weeks apart to allow the patient to see the gradual improvement in shape and fullness. Other benefits include:
- Youthful results you’ll enjoy for a long time
- Immediate results
- Little to no recovery time
- Minimal side effects
- Natural components that aid in the skin’s health
- Subtle and natural results
- A good self-confidence builder
- Adds volume and structure
- No scars
- A good collagen boost
Are Lip Fillers Long-Lasting?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers do not last forever. So, if you want to try a more daring look, or you are just not happy with the results you have, you can go back to your original look if desired.
